In little less than a month hundreds of manufactured housing industry professionals will head to Orlando for the FMHA Annual Convention, one of the biggest state meetings in the industry.

Attendees at the FMHA 2018 Annual Convention can expect to find dozens of product and services representatives exhibiting at the show, as well as a host of solo presentations and panels on best practices in the manufactured housing industry.

FMHA 2018 Annual Convention Topics and Speakers Include:

The following three presentations here are only a selection of the 10 programming pieces on community management, leadership and disaster planning available at the FMHA 2018 Annual Convention.

  • Keynote Presentation: “The Passion of the Playmaker” from former New England Patriots All-Pro Brian Holloway. In what he calls the “Crown Jewel” of his motivational presentations, Holloway will (1) Get leaders “un-stuck” once and for all; (2) Uncover the untapped wealth, power and potential that lies harbored inside the flurry of business activity; (3) Provide solutions for “getting people onboard” once and for all; (4) Clearly define the pathway and momentum to get to the next level, and (5) Show that this mind-set is measured in decades.
  • Workshop: “Mistakes Managers Make” by President of The Housing Marketplace Joe Adams, who will talk about how managers of retail sales centers and communities must wear numerous hats to succeed in relationships with customers, residents and staff. Adams takes a positive and fun look at the common mistakes managers make when performing as a firefighter, accountant, teacher, counselor, architect and trustee.
  • Workshop: “Ask the Lawyers” will involve a panel of Florida’s most experienced industry attorneys discussing changes and trends in community regulation, local government activities and the latest legal cases. The panel will conclude with an audience Q&A.
